I bought Alex, Carly and CJ the summer bridge books for the summer.
Carly acts like it is a race to see who can do the most pages a day. Now the books are set up for one page (front and back per day). Seeing how she is at her Moms 2 days, I let her do more than just one if she wants.
However, she gets real sloppy with her letter practice. Rushing through things was one of her problems with kindergarten last year. She would rush and only do things half way though.
So I have been erasing the writing and having her redo it, reminding her to take her time.
I got to thinking that the writing is on the backside of the page, and that towards the end of the lines, the "spine" gets in the way. So I pulled the pages out, she cried. Got over it and did the K's, but all her k's looked like K so I erased and had her take her time.
HOLY TEARS batman.
I know in the big picture I am not expecting too much of her, as this is what teachers expect, but I am going to be doomed. I am going to have another first day of conferences meeting for her. (which is never a good thing, lol)
